Looking back, 2019 was a big year for our city. We opened some amazing new parks, including Lexw Qwò:m and Kensington, completed the Lickman Interchange Project and established the Integrated Community Safety Task Force. We also focused our efforts to combat litter and illegal dumping.
Thanks to the Province and BC Housing, two modular housing facilities opened in Chilliwack to house 92 individuals from one of our most vulnerable populations.
With Skwah First Nati on, Shxwhá:y Village and the Federal Government, we announced the $45 million Town Dyke Upgrade project to enhance flood protection infrastructure for each of our communities.Our team accomplished many goals in 2019, and these successes would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of Council, advisory committee members, volunteers, City staff , and you.
